A Knowledgeable Approach To Complex Divorce Issues
A complex divorce often refers to one in which the parties have accumulated significant assets and now must divide them. However, the term can refer to other factors that may complicate agreements regarding parenting time, support or the division of marital property.
For example, a divorcing couple with a special needs child will encounter challenging decisions that other divorcing couples do not. How will the child’s educational needs be met while allowing both parents to remain involved in the child’s life? How should the extra costs involved be factored into support decisions?
At the Law Office of Mary Davis, P.C., in Oak Brook, I assist individuals throughout the Chicago metro area with a wide range of complex issues in divorce. For more than 25 years, I have provided strong representation in family law cases to people in and near DuPage County, Cook County, Kendall County, Kane County and Will County in Illinois.
Other examples of complex issues that may arise during or after divorce include:
- Relocating with a child
- Clearing the way for stepparent adoption
- Accurately valuing complex assets
- One spouse hiding assets
- Dealing with child abuse in custody decisions
- Addiction problems
- Orders of protection
- Modification of a divorce decree
Experience That Makes A Difference
When unique situations arise in a divorce, it is critical to work with a lawyer who has led clients through that situation or a similar issue before. Because I have 25-plus years of experience with family law cases, I have seen almost every situation imaginable.
My emphasis on resolving divorce issues through negotiation and, if necessary, mediation allows my clients to work toward solutions to complex issues outside of court. In doing so, all parties involved retain more control over the outcome. When disputes are placed in the hands of a family court judge to resolve, anything can happen.
Of course, there are times when a dispute cannot be resolved amicably. In these instances, I am always prepared to advocate aggressively on my clients’ behalf in court. I also have developed a large network of highly regarded experts in fields as diverse as child psychology, real estate valuation and business valuation to help when complex issues surface.
